    Actually scaled mineDifference is that it has the Quigley 4x4 which adds some weight (7-pass. window van, V-10).Scaled without driver, not much in the way of tools, etc. = 6,940 lbs.

    Air bag light

    For someone who...Has not had a steering wheel/column apart since pre-airbag, I didn't know such a thing even existed... But you're exactly right and even though that is not what they call the part now, that's what the mechanic called it once I described all three "coincidental" problems...

    V10 rebuild

    Just a questionI see this has been sitting around with no answer for a while, so I thought I would ask a question to try to draw out some other responses. The question is: Does the engine NEED a rebuild? Not being smart, but you didn't say. The reason I ask is that I have seen...

    Air bag light

    The problem is solvedBut I will give you some more information before I share what $170.00 taught me. I got the airbag sensor replaced again. After leaving the shop I turned left, then made a right on my way home. I looked down and the darn airbag warning light was on again, but the shop was...

    Wheel spacers

    I guess that's what you call them. Some do anyhow. The device used to make the rear wheels track with the front wheels.I have seen where some swear by them. Others say they are a benefit.Does anyone use them? Do they actually help?

    Air bag light

    A new air bag codeYeah, the light is on again. If I counted correctly, it is a 9-1 code, if anyone knows what that means.Wonder how many sensors the vans have.

    Bored of the threads

    Imagine that!Not surprised.It is a very sick situation over there. So many stories, so little time.Doing some multi-tasking...I see the time clock still forces frequent re-log-ins here :>(

    Fuel filter change

    Here's one way to de-pressurizeNot sure which fuel pump system you have, but if you can get at the electrical plug connection easily, just unplug the fuel pump and start the engine. It may start but won't run long.That works best for the pumps on the frame. In-tank on a truck is harder...

    Fuel Pump? only started after thumping gas tank?!

    How did you make out?Just wondering how you made has been a while, almost three months!I have an '06. Granted, rust was not an issue in '09 when we replaced my fuel pump, but I thought it went very well. There was two of us, but with a floor jack and a cradle rigged up to hold the...

    Air bag light

    Follow-upHad the Quigley in for something in the spring...oh yeah, tire out of balance. Ended up being a bent wheel. Loaned it out twice and that's what I get for being a nice guy...a $300 wheel replacement.But I had them look at that air bag issue and it was the grille/radiator sensor...

    Fuel pump problem...again...3rd time

    Follow-upWell, so far so good. Just went past 60k and this last pump is still pumpin'.Really have to wonder if the additive was breaking down the coating inside and plugging things up.

    Having trouble with browsers

    15 minutes?I haven't timed it exactly, but it logs me out way before 15 minutes, depending on when it starts timing. It doesn't use a "slide" on the same page as a time starter. I can't answer someone on Facebook without being logged out.I will often have 3, 4, 5 FTF smilieFordlogo...

    Fuel pump problem...again...3rd time

    I have written...I have written to the manufacturer of the fuel additive. They are willing to take a look at the fuel pump to try to discover what went wrong.I might add (and I know this is in the wrong thread) that they are having increasing reports of rust in equipment diesel tanks where...

    Fuel pump problem...again...3rd time

    OK then!smiliewhathesaid Well, can't fight with that. With the extra weight of the 4x4 I have determined my best mpg comes at 40-45, which is just too slow for all but inclement weather.My best ever is 14, but a simple stiff headwind will suck the gas right out of the tank for me. I have...

    ball joints

    Yep!smilieIagree My thoughts exactly. Reason I asked was I said much the same as you just did on another forum (which shall forever remain nameless, unless you ask) under either the tires or trailer section and some "expert" kind of went ballistic saying bias-ply trailer-only tires are all...

    ball joints

    That's sweet. I don't have room. Can I come over to use yours?Just wondering, why passenger radials? The tire people all recommend trailer-type tires. I use the wear-downs from the van.
